What can I say I’ve been a bad US Men’s National team fan lately. I haven’t really taken the time to discuss the recent friendlies and I’ll be brutally honest I didn’t watch the Poland game over the weekend nor will I probably watch the Colombia game tomorrow.

In a way I am just struggling to care about these friendlies right now. The biggest thing for me is my lack of care for Poland or Colombia. Just hard to get up for friendlies sometimes.

Its nothing against the US team, I still got love for them by the truck load. I’m pumped to see Brek Shea finally getting a callup and hear that Jermaine Jones looked like the real deal (based on all the hype I’ve seen today about him).

The fact of the matter is I may be a little burnt out on the subject at the moment. I guess its a post World Cup/post Bob Bradley re-signing burnt out on my part.

Maybe its the fact that I really don’t agree with random friendlies during this time of the year. I get the need of bringing in new talent to try out but that’s never easy to do with the MLS season near its end and the European leagues just getting into the flow of their seasons.

I may tune in tomorrow for the Colombia game and I may not. We’ll just have to wait and see.
